Now that remote work is the norm, the boundaries between life, work and travel are blurring

Remote work, flexible working, freelancing… What was once the arena of a select few has been thrust into the mainstream by the covid-19 pandemic. We are a new generation of digital nomads, no longer tied to a certain location due to our office job, all we need is a laptop. This exciting shift in work culture means that the boundaries between life, work and travel are becoming more and more blurred… You no longer need to quit your job to spend a month living in a new city or a few months travelling around Europe. Now that you can work from anywhere, here’s why we think you should consider work from home jobs in London

London is the ultimate destination for a new generation of remote workers

Traditionally, options for living in a new city short-term were limited, with hotels feeling too temporary and long-let contracts lasting 12 months. That’s where short term rentals come in. Airbnb style vacation rentals allow you to slot straight into a home with no hassle, coming equipped with everything you need and bills included- all you need to bring is yourself and your laptop! London is full of holiday rentals and self-contained apartments. Many (including us!) offer long stay discounts to make them more affordable, our rates are currently 25% cheaper for stays over 14 days. Picture yourself in a uniquely designed Kensington studio at the Knaresborough, sipping a coffee before setting up for the day at your laptop-friendly workspace. 

Another of London’s remote working benefits is that if you get tired of working from your apartment, there are hundreds of amazing coworking spaces and coffee shops dotted around the city. Huckletree, White City has a cool, collaborative vibe and offers day passes at a reasonable price. Alternatively, every London neighbourhood has a pick of fantastic cafes to work from. At Nestor, we have our personal top picks for the best cafes in London to work from: we love Bondi Green and KuPP on the Grand Union Canal, Paddington. They have a great atmosphere, plenty of seating and excellent coffee and food options. They’re also just a few stops on the district line from our serviced apartment building, The Carlyle in Earl’s Court, making them ideal for our guests who feel like a change of scenery. 

It may go without saying, but there is always a cool event or new neighbourhood to visit whilst you’re here. A quick google of things to do in London this weekend pulls up pages upon pages of recommendations: London exhibitions, live music, restaurant openings and hidden gems, not to mention famous London tourist attractions, shopping districts and green spaces. With so much to do, anyone can slot themselves into London life, filling their free time with endless activities and meeting London’s incredible community.
